It started with a "color run" of hand dyed cotton created by my friend Kristin, which I used for the geese. The "sky" surrounding the geese is a couple of blue gradation fabrics. And the piecing comes from Ricky Tims' Dimensional Flying Geese technique.
Way out of my usual color comfort zone, I think this quilt emerged to be a very structured and masculine composition. Perfect, I hope, as a gift for my nephew Chris who recently completed his Police Academy studies. (May he never have cause to draw his weapon.)
